How can you stop spread of COVID-19 in CA?

What can you do to stop spread of COVID-19 in CA?  Use the particular skill set you have.  We all have one.  Use yours.

Dr. Erickson of Kern County did his own thinking and he concludes that lots of people get the virus but few die from it.  About 0.02% die from it which is about double the number of persons who die from flu every year.   Those who die from COVID-19  are the elderly with pre-existing conditions.

Imagine that you are a  newly  minted attorney in CA. How can you  help stop deaths by COVID-19 in CA?  Attorneys are trained to think logically and to think for themselves.   

First of all don’t believe the experts, don’t believe Gov. Newsom and don’t believe whatever your local health officer in your county says. The BIG PICTURE is that old people die in nursing homes.

Example why to question the “experts”:     Santa Cruz County’s health officer Gail  Newel  recently double booked and walked out of a ZOOM meeting scheduled by the City of Santa Cruz.   One wonders what meeting she went off to  attend that was more important than addressing questions from the public.  This not very tech  savey  Santa Cruz County public health officer  Dr. Newel  does not use  an electronic calendar.   With an electronic calendar Dr. Newel  would know ahead of time that she had double booked.

Gov. Newsom is another example why you should not trust  “the experts” or  politicians.   Gov. Newsom recently shut down a facility for veterans which costs $25K  a year while giving $100 million to illegal families who have COVID-19 related expenses.   So who does Gov. Newsom want to protect more — veterans who are old or young illegal families?

Headline in Santa Cruz Sentinel today  5/28/2020:   County may apply for reopening variance.  Local news is that 5 large restaurants in neighboring county  Monterey are opening up entirely.  So if Monterey can do it why is Santa  Cruz so slow?   Don’t trust your local  Santa Cruz county health department to know squat. They follow ‘orders’ from above which goes to the Democrat Party and Gov. Newsom.

Remember  — think for yourself and think outside the box.

Some basics you  can do to reduce deaths by COVID-19 in CA:

  1.  Get business cards &  a simple  web site  page functioning     Call a web page:    CA Health Justice for Elderly Patients   & Staff 
  2.  Focus on  the BIG problem in CA:  deaths of vulnerable persons in long term care facilities.  Statistics show that  50+% of  CA COVID-19  deaths occur in long term care facilities.  Old people with multiple health conditions get the virus and  die in these facilities.   Staff  may bring infections or may get infected. As CA citizens take it into their own hands to ‘put out the fire’ where the fire is bigest — that will do a lot to manage the virus overall.   Overall, lots of people are or well get infected BUT few die.  Those who die are the elderly with pre-existing conditions.
  3. Remember  the overall make up of workers employed  in long term care facilities. What kind of training have they had about bacteria and spread of virus?   When staff leave where do they go and who do they contact?
  4.   Connect with resources at CANHR.    Look at the website for  California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform  CANHR offers two Online courses for Attorneys in June 2o2o.  They have a website specific for  COVID-19.
  5.  Tell CANHR that  you are an attorney — or whatever your professional  skill set is —  and what you know about COVID-19. Tell CANHR you want to do what you can in your local community.
  6. ……more to come what you can do about COVID-19

Half of COVID-19 deaths in CA are in nursing homes directed by Newsom to accept persons testing positive for virus

Govenor Newsom  — like  New York —  moves persons with the coronavirus  into  CA  nursing care facilites.

On March 30th, Governor Newsom’s administration warned skilled nursing facilities that they “shall not refuse to admit or readmit a resident based on their status as a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 case.”

“California’s directive is nothing less than a death sentence for countless residents,” warned Patricia McGinnis, executive director of California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform.

Half of California’s deaths, or 1,276, have occurred in nursing homes, though not all are the SNFs that were ordered to accept coronavirus patients.

Whitmer, Cuomo, Wolf, and Newsom have been widely praised by the media, even though their disastrous policies likely led to the deaths of thousands of senior citizens in nursing homes.

There were states that got it right, protecting senior citizens by barring the transfer of coronavirus patients to nursing homes, requiring negative tests before a transfer, and creating separate facilities.

Do what we need to do — shelter in place for weeks as Gov. Newsom says?

Gov. Newsom says it will be weeks before he modifies CA’s mandatory stay-at-home order.   Government has to do “what we need to do” before relaxing the order. says Newsom.

That’s an awfully nebulous  standard for a CA  Gov.  to use to make decisions that affect 40 million citizens.

Some entities   have pushed back. Police chiefs in Modoc and Humboldt  Counties refuse to enforce CA  Gov. Newsom’s order to close beaches.

Trinity Covenant Church  in Aptos, CA    starts real services  Sunday,May 3 – including celebration of  the Body and Blood of Christ  – in their parking lot instead of their auditorium    Church elders  talked   through issues with  local government officials about their decision.

What do we really  need to do right now?     In my view, we need to  grow  the  economy and socialize  as a society as we largely did.

Remember: The overwhelming evidence   suggests   that the people most susceptible to the virus are the elderly with preexisting medical conditions.   So why target everyone else for confinement?   Because “we need to do it” says Gov. Newsom.

Gov. Newsom’s policy to continue sheltering in place for many more weeks  harms  40 million people in CA.  His policy promotes dependence on government.     Does  Newsom  want more people fleeing CA for a place in some state  where they can have a business rather than rely on welfare?  Over 1/3 of all persons on welfare already reside in CA.   Roughly 13.3% of CA residents live in poverty.

And, why did  CA Gov.  Newsom buy all those masks from China  –whose politicians exported chronovirus to 192 countries?

People have the right to petition their government  for redress of grievances — on the beach and in the public square. The “experts” were and are wrong about number of supposed deaths in USA (2 million was estimate originally). Businesses have seen their livlihoods  collapse as  their income turn to zero.

CA hospitals are relatively empty and the back up places for additional hospital care are being put to other uses in Santa Cruz, CA.  Across the USA hospitals are closing  and   going broke as they have not been able to do elective surguries and their beds are largely empty.

It’s time now  that the  health care “experts” (Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx)   took a back seat to “what to do now” to open up the economy and let people lead lives as close to normal as possible.
